To change the wireless network password on Ubuntu, you can follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Network Manager icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
  2. Select "Wi-Fi Settings" from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click on the "Settings" button next to the wireless network you want to change the password for.
  4. In the "Wi-Fi Security" tab, change the "Password" field to the new password you want to use.
  5. Click the "Save" button to apply the changes.


If you are unable to access the Network Manager icon or you are using a version of Ubuntu without it, you can also change the wireless network password from the command line by following these steps:

  1. Open a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T.
  2. Type the command nmcli device wifi list to see a list of available wireless networks.
  3. Find the network you want to change the password for and note the "SSID" and "BSSID" values.
  4. Type the command nmcli device wifi connect <SSID> password <new_password> bssid <BSSID> to connect to the network with the new password.


Make sure to replace <SSID>, <new_password>, and <BSSID> with the actual values from step 3.
